If labels like Helmut Lang, Suno, and Costello Tagliapietra have it their way, you're going to be covering a whole lot of ground come spring. These brands (plus others, such as Jason Wu and Organic by John Patrick) have swapped the pointy stiletto for sandals. 

But not just any sandals--really, really flat sandals. It's the latest incarnation of the Adidas shower slide-meets-Birkenstocks trend that's been happening for a bit now, this time in luxe materials like soft leather. 

Padding around in really comfy shoes all spring long is good enough as it is, but even better? You've got plenty of options. You could go with Helmut Lang's thick-strapped edition, Jason Wu's wrap-around, John Patrick's peekaboo toe version by Ria Menorca, or Suno's white-soled collab with Nicholas Kirkwood. And while these sandals looked amazing paired with everything from slipdresses (another big spring trend) to loose trousers, we think they'd look just as cool coupled with denim cut-offs and a white t-shirt.

Considering this is fashion-meets-function at its absolute best, it's no wonder the models looked downright happy while they were walking down the catwalk...
